Hollywood actor Mel Gibson endured a heated encounter with police officers in Malibu, California last weekend after his car was stopped close to the scene of his infamous 2006 arrest.

The Braveheart star was driving along the Pacific Coast Highway with a female passenger on Saturday when police officers stopped the car at a checkpoint.

Cops were satisfied Gibson had not been drinking, but asked to see his driving license and the actor allegedly became angry after telling the officers he did not have the correct paperwork with him, according to TMZ.com.

The website reports Gibson allegedly raised his voice to the cops, who managed to calm the tensions before letting the star off with a warning.

Gibson was arrested on the same stretch of road back in 2006 on a driving under the influence charge and his drunken rant at a Jewish police officer hit headlines and haunted him for years afterwards.
